Denim Distress + Splash of Random

First off, I am in need of some fashion advice...
I'm pretty sure I've been a GAP girl since the day I was born. Everything usually fits me well, I love their design aesthetic, and it lasts me for years! Unfortunately, I have a few pairs of jeans that are either worn out or too snug, so I dropped by GAP last week to explore.

Too baggy. Too tight. Too long. Too awkward.
That's pretty how my GAP denim extravaganza went.

I've been considering making a denim investment, especially after reading Rachel's post on Citizens of Humanity. I want a dark wash with nice lines that will hold up. I would love to find a pair that fit my body perfectly, but I've come the realization that a good pair may cost more than my usual $59.50.

{ So yes, where do you buy your jeans? }

{ Citizens of Humanity: "Kelly" }

On to that splash of random that I talked about...

1) Best. Dinner. Ever.

I was invited out to dinner at Capital Grille with Adam and him parents last night for his Dad's birthday. I have to tell you that I think this was one of the best meals I've ever had. I ordered the petite fillet mignon with crimini mushroom sauce, and BF and I split a huge vat of garlic mashed potatoes. Yummm!

In case that didn't clog our arteries enough, we split the world's most amazing coconut cream pie and a complimentary flourless chocolate espresso cake with his parents. I don't think I've ever been happier to change into my stretchy yoga pants than I was last night.

To top it off, I woke up full... ugh. Hello detox day!

2) Photo Texts

About a month ago, my 2 best friends {who live about 3 hours away from me} and I started sending each other "getting ready" photos. It all started when I sent this picture to my dear Courtney, because I wanted to showcase the gorgey earrings she gave me for being in her wedding.

Despite the bad lighting, it's fun to send/receive photos, get outfit ideas from each other, and feel like you're catching up! I was proud of the little number I threw together for work yesterday. It's shocking how put together you look when you try?!

You should try it out with your gal pals! What a fun way to see each other - whether near or far!

3) Bella Beast's B-day

My sweet little baby Cockapoo is turning 3 on Monday... where have the years gone?! I sure love my big baby so much, and I couldn't ever imagine my life without my snuggly girl!

I've been browsing around to try and find a doggie cake recipe on Pinterest, but only found homemade doggie treats... waa waa. I may try this Peanut Butter Birthday Cake recipe - she loves the PB! Has anyone ever made a doggie cake before? Tips? Advice?

Well, I promised random and oh boy, did I deliver or what?! Lots of crazy shenanigans going on in my noodle today! Hope y'all are having a great week so far!

Let me know what random things are on your mind!

  1. Soooooo, I took the plunge and bought that pair of Citizens jeans. EEEK! A bit more expensive than I'm used to paying for jeans, but I figured I may as well splurge on one thing that I know I'll get tons of use out of...let's just hope they fit :) I'll have to let you know how they turn out!

  2. I love my Express jeans! They by far fit me the best and feel incredible!

    Cute blog : )

  3. Try Loft denim! There are some great fits this year! Also, if you need a huge denim selection, go to Nordstrom if you can! They have a HUGE section!

  4. I'm an AE girl when it comes to jeans. Mostly because they offer their sizes in "short" which is hard to come by these days. :)

    My sister has made lots of dog cakes/treats. You should stop by Three Dog Bakery and see what they offer- we had one near us when we lived in Cali and always got cakes and treats from them!
